Counterhegemony 2017

The Latin American Research Platform invites the public to a conference and platform to critically analyse the current neoliberalisation of the university system in Australia. This half-day event to be held in Sydney, Australia, in May 6, 2017 will feature presentations by academics, students and activists. The event will also include interviews with protagonists of the 2011 Chilean Winter student movement, who managed to mobilise an entire country and radically change the national discourse on the invasion of the market into higher education and most public areas. The event is to be held at 22-36 Mountain Street, Ultimo (Sydney CBD), NSW, on Saturday May 6, 2017, from 1PM to 5PM. See program here.
